Brighton defender White: We shouldn't rely on others to stay up

Brighton defender Ben White admits they were disappointed with defeat to Wolves.

A 2-1 defeat to Wolves on Sunday at Molineux means Albion are still ten points clear of the bottom three although Fulham have the opportunity to close the gap when they play their game in hand later today at home to Burnley.

White said, “We need to get the points we need ourselves, we've never wanted to rely on other teams. We will go into Saturday's game against West Ham determined to get three points. We've got two suspensions to deal with now but we have to go again."

White felt Albion had taken their foot off the pedal after a dominant first-half performance.

“We started the second half quite sloppy and I think that's why the red card occurred. In the first half I thought we controlled the game but they then punished us.

“We have got some big players and we worked all week on set-pieces and it was great to see it work for us but obviously we're disappointed with the second half. It was an opportunity for us and it got away from us."
